Swimmers have the chance to compete in either the 1,600m or 800m race in the pristine waters of the Arabian Gulf on Friday March 31.  The world’s most luxurious hotel, which is located on an island off the coast, is one of Dubai’s most iconic landmarks. Top finishers will receive prizes sponsored by Jumeirah Group and all participants will receive free access to Wild Wadi Waterpark for the day, along with 50 percent discounted entry for a friend.

Cedric Betis, Chairman of Dubai Holding Wellness Committee, says: “Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is a prestigious landmark and a global icon for Dubai.
